Description

Duke Ellington was one of the greatest composers ever lived. He will be recognized in American history for his contribution as a black man and as an artist. It is my fortune to be able to express musically  the love and respect that my colleagues and I share for the stature and magnificence of Duke’s musical genius. Duke has left his legacy of cultural enrichment to all mankind. An enrichment which will continue to be a source of inspiration and influence in the  evolution of Black American music. Music transcends all boundaries. From the shadows an image appeared that cast rays of light over the entire universe. For the first time issued on CD.
